happy birthday frida

Today is the 100th birthday of Frida Kahlo.

As for the rat in the kitchen: Delicious. Everyone was there. James Beard (Remy), Julia /Alice or all women trying to make it in a (male) chef's world (Collette); every beleaguered sous chefs or pastry chef you've ever read about, every hassled waiter. I have thought about what famous chef sold out to the fast/frozen food conglomerates. I can't come up with a name but someone will know. The critic, Anton Ego is "played" by Peter O'Toole. A bit of casting genius. When you see the movie, pay particular attention to him ~ as if you could avoid doing so. Brilliant writing.
